PaRappa the Rapper, wholly original and rather bizarre series of rhythm games for the original PlayStation has been announced to receive its own TV anime adaptation series. The first episode of the adaptation has aired last August 18th, with the rest of the season waiting until October to make its debut.

The new series will be titled PJ Berri no Mogu Mogu Munya Munya animated by the studio Doga Koto, most well known for manga adaptations like Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun and Himōto! Umaru-chan.

PJ Berri no Mogu Mogu Munya Munya stars PJ Berri, a lazy DJ teddie bear with a big appetite and an even larger love of music; voiced by Jun Oosaka, with Yuuto Suzuki playing PaRappa, and Yōji Ueda as Chop Chop Master Onion, all classic characters from the original PS1 game.

The series is in celebration of the franchise’s 20th anniversary, despite a lack of recent entries in the series. PaRappa’s last appearance in a video game was in 2012’s Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale on the PS3, while the last proper entry was the PSP port of the original game back in 2006.

Parappa had its first anime series adaptation on 2001 which was produced by J.C. Staff and Production I.G, it ran for 30 episodes.
